Make or Take?

I’m finishing up my final project for my photography class. I almost wish I could start over, but it’s too late. These are the images I am submitting for the last class. Good or bad, they are what they are…
Over the last couple of weeks we have been talking about our style or method of shooting photos. Do we take photos as the opportunity arises? Or do we make photos happen by setting up and controlling everything that goes into the photo?
My photos are rather random and all over the board. So I started thinking about the contrast between taking & making… in both photography & quilting. This resulted in three diptychs (2 photos combined to make a single statement where the images together say more than what each one could say standing alone).
On the remodel front: lots of plumbing and electrical work being done this week, which results in lots of work without much to visibly show for it. I am amazed & thankful that people know how to do this stuff!! And it gives me a glimpse into what non-quilters must think about people like me cutting up fabric and putting it back together again.
